Earlier this year, Andron’s office-based team in Cumbernauld spent the day volunteering at local Scottish charity, Watch Us Grow; a charity dedicated to making positive changes in the lives of Adults with Additional Support Needs.
Watch us Grow create opportunities for the people they work with to grow in confidence and become more independent. Their goal is to help people not only live more equally within their own communities but thrive.
At the heart of their charity is a huge garden, which provides the basis for their students to learn and work, and our team spent the day painting sheds and tending to the various outdoor sections of the garden used for growing plants, vegetables, and fruit.
Watch us Grow are an incredible charity who have been supporting Adults with Additional Support Needs for over 20 years. We were lucky to volunteer on a day when the sun was shining, and our team got to work painting the sheds and outhouses in the garden to prepare them for winter. The garden is an important place for students to socialise with peers, develop their confidence, and learn the skills they need to thrive, and we had a lovely time socialising with some of the students who attended that day.
At the end of the afternoon, the students were kind enough to send us home with some freshly picked fruit and veg! We were delighted to once again support this incredible charity who are doing such important work in our local community, and look forward to volunteering again next year.
